Isolate different production areas with high performance door

In food industry facilities, distinct areas need isolation without affecting the overall flow of business. In food industry facilities, there are many places where you need to keep contaminants out. In some areas of the building, it is important to keep the temperature low enough to prevent spoilage. In other areas, food safety is a paramount concern and cleanliness is maintained at a high level. Food manufacturing facilities, especially those that handle raw products, require strict isolation but that isolation shouldn’t affect the ability of employees and machinery to move through a facility. And in a non-food related facility, companies may need to set up various production areas.

Preventing contaminants from entering various areas is also of great importance. After that, it is important that their productivity is not affected by the process involved in preventing contamination. This means that effective sealing depends upon how effectively a door seals to the opening where it closes. High performance doors must be able to prevent contamination in addition to providing clear access for traffic and equipment.

Touch-less Accessibility to a church

Blast freezers provide a unique door challenge to rolling steel, overhead and even fabric doors. The temperatures are usually in the range of -10° F on the warm side to a subfreezing temperature of -30° to -40° F on the cold side. These low temperatures are needed to ensure that the products remain frozen during transportation abroad. Unfortunately, such low temperatures also cause icing problems on conventional doors. The doors jam and ice builds up on the panels creating headaches and safety issues for the owner.


Industrial door systems solve these difficult issues with their commercial door. The door has a heavy-duty low temperature 0.25" thick EPDM rubber curtain that is rated for continuous use at -40° to -50° F. The curtain remains flexible and straightens quickly to enter the guides during the closing cycle. Ice does not build up on this curtain the same way it does on conventional products.

Other items that need to be included in the order for proper operation of the door are
  • One-way rectifier and voltage relay for cut-off in the DC circuit rectifier to keep the brake warm and frost free
  • Synthetic oil and a heat probe in the gear box
  • A heater strip in the limit box and the wall mounted panel

An existing large yacht storage building was converted to a windmill tower production facility. The large space was perfect for fabricating and assembling massive sections of towers in preparation for shipment to field installation. However, the horizontal sliding doors required 3-4 men to open, frequently struggling with ice and snow in the door tracks; one time dislodging the door completely. This was a serious worker safety concern as well as an inefficient operation. Several other types of large hangar doors were considered for similar cost however lead times were much longer.


Broad wind already had a very positive recent history with doors in a blast booth application. The doors had proven to have a tight seal, were low maintenance and had the ability to withstand accidental impact. The heavy-duty doors would accommodate the large equipment used to move tower sections in and out of the building. Broad wind's concern about wind load was quickly put to rest with 90 mph rating. The heavy- duty door construction and springless design were key features for the operations team. Management's initial apprehension for the cost of these large doors was allayed when safety Risk and ROI was fully reviewed.

A well-known upscale bar and restaurant had a significant problem with theft from both the dining area and the bar. They also wanted to reduce the time and labor involved in setting up and closing operations each day. The goal was to minimize shrinkage (inventory loss) while keeping employee theft at a minimum.


The design team found a creative solution to the repetitive task of setting up and taking down bar displays: installing a series of lockable steel Roll-Up doors that can remain in place around the clock. The doors, which are stained to match the existing woodwork, offer greater security than storeroom shelving.
